My natural colour and stitching workshops have an emphasis on issues connected to sustainability and well-being. Using traditional techniques, sessions explore the relationships between craft, social history and the natural environment. 

I run occasional workshops from my home studio, based near Bradford, West Yorkshire. Taught in small groups, these popular sessions give lots of opportunity for questions and conversation during the day.

I also deliver workshops and talks in schools, colleges, higher education, for textile groups and CPD for teachers, these workshops are not listed here. For workshop fees and other information please contact me.
